Our Story
 Nestled in the hills of Orleans County, behind its towering hedges, our historic homestead speaks loudly of family connection and local culture. Hillcrest remains a family-owned and operated nursery, established back in the 40s by renowned horticulturist and author Lewis Hill. 

Laura Hill demonstrates a strong commitment to local community and agriculture by offering an abundant variety of plants, trees and edibles that have been time-tested here in the north country! 

Walking paths are maintained throughout heritage orchards and past the stream.  Not up for a meander?  There is still plenty for you to experience, whether it is by attending one of our community events, visiting the enticing Garden & Gift Shop filled with originals designed and created from local and New England artists and artisans or simply rocking in the shade underneath one of our trees!  

Please connect with us on Facebook to stay apprised of events and sales. 

We look forward to your visit!
